Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. let's start with the left one. There's a 10 that's subtracted. How can you cancel it out (aka move it to the other side of the equation)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can't see what you're doing, so I'm not sure we're talking about the same equation. Can you use the draw tool to show me what you have?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When we solved the other equation we added 10 first. (see the one on the left.) Do the same thing for the equation on the right dw:1435069181874:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. on the left equation we got 18. but there are 2 solutions. We need to solve the equation on the right. What do you get when add 10 to 26 on thisdw:1435069483961:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02(18)  10 = 26. That works for one answer. The absolute value equation has 2 solutions. 18 is the solution for 26. We need to find the solution for 26.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's what we're solving this for. What do you get if you add 10 to 26? dw:1435070054490:dw
